Man charged in Humboldt attempted murder

HUMBOLDT — A man has been arrested for allegedly trying to run over another man in a pickup truck in Humboldt earlier this year.

Nicholas J. Bradley, 35, is charged with one count of attempted murder, a class B felony.

The incident happened on April 29, 2018, according to the criminal complaint, filed with the Humboldt County attorney’s office.

According to the complaint, at 10:21 p.m. on that date, Bradley allegedly hit Austin Dean, of Humboldt, with his 1999 Dodge Durango pickup truck at 701 Sumner Ave. in Humboldt.

That address is in downtown Humboldt.

Iowa Courts Online records revealed that Bradley was charged with attempted murder on June 29.

According to a document listing all the people who were arrested and brought to the Webster County Jail, Bradley was arrested Sept. 7 at 9:17 a.m. at 2417 Eighth Ave. S. in Fort Dodge.

It’s unclear where his home address is. The criminal complaint lists a Fort Dodge address, but the arrest sheet gives a Humboldt address.

Iowa Courts Online records stated that Bradley had his initial appearance Monday in front of Humboldt County Magistrate Greg Stoebe.

Stoebe ordered Bradley held on bond, though the bond amount was not listed.

He also appointed attorney Joseph Tofilon, of Fort Dodge, to represent Bradley.

The defendant’s preliminary hearing has been set for Sept. 18.
